Incorporation of IRA Agreement & Disclosures
All other terms and disclosures for our Individual Retirement Accounts are contained in the Credit Union’s Individual Retirement Account Agreement & Disclosure statement, which by this reference is incorporated into this account disclosure in its entirety. When you open your Individual Retirement Account, the Credit Union agreement and disclosure statement will be provided to you.
This EFT Disclosure & Agreement as amended from time to time (agreement) sets forth the terms and conditions governing the use of the SCE Federal Credit Union electronic transfer services. Disclosure information that applies to all electronic services offered by SCE Federal Credit Union is given below, followed by specific disclosure information for each service. SCE Federal Credit Union may also provide remittance transfers (defined by Regulation E, Subpart B, as an electronic transfer of funds of more than $15, which is requested by a sender and sent to a designated recipient in a foreign country by a remittance transfer provider). The terms and conditions for such electronic transfers will be disclosed to you separately when you receive those services, and may differ from the terms and conditions disclosed herein. As applicable and to the extent not in conflict with such separately provided disclosures, the terms and conditions herein shall apply to remittance transfers that also meet the definition of an electronic fund transfer under Regulation E, subpart A. This agreement takes the place of all prior agreements and disclosures governing the use of all electronic services. By retaining, using, or allowing others to use the electronic services offered by SCE Federal Credit Union, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. In this agreement, the term “you” and “your(s)” refer to the member, and the terms “we,” “us” and “our(s)” refer to SCE Federal Credit Union.
Personal identification number
The Credit Union will issue you a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that must be used with the ATM/Debit Card for transactions that require the use of a PIN. This number should be memorized. Do not write it on your ATM/Debit Card or where it is easily accessible by others. After memorizing your PIN, you should destroy the notice disclosing your PIN in a secure manner. If you forget, misplace or otherwise disclose your PIN, contact the Credit Union and we will issue you a new one.
Right to receive documentation of transactions
You will get a monthly account statement reflecting all of your transactions unless there is no activity in a particular month. In any case you will get the statement at least quarterly. Depending on the terminal, or if the transaction is $15 or less, you may receive a receipt at the time you make a transaction at a terminal. If you do receive a receipt, retain the receipt to compare with your monthly statement from the Credit Union.
Your liability for lost, stolen or unauthorized transactions involving automated teller machine (ATM) cards
Tell us at once if you believe your ATM/Debit Card and/or Personal Identification Number (PIN) has been lost or stolen, or if you believe an electronic transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Calling is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit, if you have one with us). If you tell us within two business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your ATM/Debit Card or PIN without your permission. If you do not tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ATM/Debit Card or PIN, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your ATM/Debit Card or PIN without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your statement shows transfers you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods. If you have authorized someone else to use the ATM/Debit Card and/or PIN, you are responsible for all transactions that person or persons initiates at any time, even if the amount or transactions exceed what you may have authorized.
Your liability for lost, stolen or unauthorized transactions involving Visa Debit Card
Tell us at once if you believe your Debit Card and/or Personal Identification Number (PIN) has been lost or stolen or if your statement shows an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Calling is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit if you have one with us). If you tell us within 60 days of our sending your statement, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your debit card without your permission. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the close of the 60 days and before notice to us. If your delay in notifying us was due to extenuating circumstances beyond your reasonable control, including extended travel, you or a member of your family’s serious illness or death, hospitalization, permanent mental impairment or serious physical impairment, unless the circumstance did not reasonably contribute to your delay in notifying us within the 60-day period, we will extend the 60-day period by a reasonable period.
Special notice to Visa Debit cardholders
If there is an unauthorized use of your Visa Debit Card or a Plus network or Interlink transaction, and the transaction takes place on the Visa network, then your liability will be $0. This provision limiting your liability does not apply to Visa Corporate Card transactions, Visa Purchasing Card transactions, anonymous Visa Prepaid Card transactions, ATM cash disbursements processed on non-Visa or non-Plus networks, or non-Visa PIN-less debit transactions. Additionally, your liability with respect to unauthorized transactions may be greater than the above $0 liability limit, to the extent allowed under applicable law, if the Credit Union reasonably determines, based on substantial evidence, you were negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your account or card. In any case, to minimize your potential liability you should notify us of any unauthorized use no later than 60 days after your statement was mailed to you.
How to notify the Credit Union in the event of an unauthorized transaction
If you believe your ATM/Debit Card or PIN has been lost or stolen, or someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call 800.866.6474 or Contact Us through our website. You should also contact us if you believe a transfer has been made using information from your check without your permission.
Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
Our liability for failure to make transfers
If we do not complete a transaction to or from your savings or checking account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance, if:
There may be other exceptions not specifically mentioned above.
In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers
Call 800.866.6474 or Contact Us through our website as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the first statement on which the problem or error appeared.
If you tell us orally, we may require you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.
We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. (If the error you assert is an unauthorized Visa transaction, other than a cash disbursement at an ATM, we will credit your account within 5 business days unless we determine the circumstances or your account history warrant a delay, in which case you will receive credit within 10 business days.) If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account.
For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents we used in our investigation.
In order to obtain the electronic services listed, you must open and maintain a savings or checking account. All charges associated with our electronic fund transactions are disclosed within our Fees & Charges.
Disclosure of account information to third parties
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:
Keep the Credit Union informed of your current address to insure correct mailing of monthly statements. If we do not have your current address on file, you will be assessed the fee as stated within our Fees & Charges. If you have elected to receive statements electronically, it is also your responsibility to keep the Credit Union informed of your current email address.
The Credit Union may change the terms and conditions of this agreement from time to time by mailing written notice to your address as it appears on our records. If any change results in greater cost or liability to you or decreases access to your accounts, you will be given at least 21 days prior notice of the change. Prior notice may not be given where an immediate change in terms or conditions is necessary to maintain the integrity of the system and/or the security of ATM cards, debit cards or designated accounts.
You may terminate this agreement with us at any time. The Credit Union reserves the right to terminate this agreement and/or your use of your ATM/debit card or PIN with or without cause. We may do so immediately if:
Additional benefits/card enhancements
The Credit Union may from time to time offer additional services to your account. Some may be at no additional cost to you and others may involve a specified fee. You understand the Credit Union is not obligated to offer such services and may withdraw or change them at any time.
Waiver of rights
The Credit Union can delay enforcing any of the provisions under this agreement or the law any number of times without losing its right to enforce them at a later date.
Except as stated otherwise in the agreement, this agreement does not alter or amend any of the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with the Credit Union.
If any part of this agreement should be held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
Who is bound by this agreement
Each person who signs the application agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If more than one person signs the application, all signers are jointly and severally liable. The Credit Union can waive or delay enforcement of its rights as to one signer without affecting its ability to enforce its rights as to the other signers. The agreement is also binding upon your heirs, personal representatives and successors.
By using your access to the system, or authorizing anyone else to use your access to the system, and/or by signing the application, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement & Disclosure.
Our policy is to delay the availability of funds you deposit in your account. During the delay, you may not withdraw the funds in cash and we will not use the funds to pay checks you have written.
Determining the availability of a deposit
The length of the delay is counted in business days from the day of your deposit. Every day is a business day except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit prior to the close of business on a business day we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. A 24-hour hold will be placed on the deposit, if deemed necessary, a longer hold will apply.
However, if you make a deposit after the close of business or on a day we are not open, we will consider the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. A 24-hour hold will be placed on the deposit, if deemed necessary, a longer hold will apply. All deposits made at a non-proprietary (not owned by the Credit Union) ATM will be made available for withdrawal by the fifth business day following the banking day of deposit. The length of the delay varies depending on the type of deposit and is explained below.
Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit.
Funds from the following deposits are available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:
If you make the deposit in person to one of our employees, funds from the following deposits are also available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:
If you do not make your deposit in person to one of our employees (for example, if you mail the deposit), funds from these deposits will be available on the second business day after the day of your deposit.
Other check deposits
Funds from other check deposits will not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. The first $225 of your deposits, however, will be made available on the first business day.
Longer delays may apply
Funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.
Special rules for new accounts
If you are a new member, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open.
Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,525 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, federal, state and local government checks and United State Postal money orders will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,525 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,525 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.
Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the 9th business day after the day of your deposit.
Deposits at automated teller machines (ATMs)
Funds from any deposits (cash or checks) made at ATMs we do not own or operate may not be available until the fifth business day after the day of your deposit. This rule does not apply at ATMs that we own or operate.
Important notice about your account(s) or safe deposit box – California residents
In accordance with California’s Unclaimed Property Law, C.C.P. §1500, et seq., any funds held by the Credit Union (including, without limitation, funds in a share, share draft, certificate, or other account, sums for the payment of cashier’s checks, teller’s checks, etc.) may be transferred to the Unclaimed Property Division of the California State Controller’s Office if no activity occurs in the account within the time period specified by state law. In addition, any property held in a Credit Union safe deposit box may be transferred upon the running of the time period specified by state law from the date any lease or rental period expires or any agreement for the safe deposit box terminates. We may assess a fee for sending you notice regarding your unclaimed property as set forth in our Fee Schedule.
Important notice about your account(s) or safe deposit box – Nevada residents
The holder(s) of this account shall inform the Credit Union of any change in their address(es). The shares and accumulated dividends earned thereon will escheat to the Office of the State Treasurer if, for a period of three (3) years:
In addition, any property held in a Credit Union safe deposit box may be transferred upon the running of the time period specified by state law from the date any lease or rental period expires or any agreement for the safe deposit box terminates.
The terms, conditions and information contained in the Membership Application, and all amendments thereto, are by this reference hereby incorporated in their entirety into this TIS Agreement and become an integral part of the General Terms & Conditions of the Credit Union accounts.
The ownership of trust, Totten trust and UTMA accounts shall be governed by the applicable Account Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in the Account Agreement, the parties who sign an Account Agreement agree with each other and with the Credit Union that all funds in the accounts shall be owned as follows:
Special rules for Joint Accounts
Withdrawals by and liability of Joint Owners – The Accountholders of an account agree with each other and with the Credit Union that all funds and all accumulations thereon are and will be owned by all Accountholders jointly and equally regardless of their net contributions and are subject to the withdrawal of or receipt by any of the Accountholders, and payment to any of them shall be valid and discharge the Credit Union from any and all liability for such payment. The Accountholders of an account expressly agree each Accountholder is jointly and severally liable for any and all overdrafts, losses or charges to an account created by any Accountholder(s).
Deposits – The Credit Union may cash or deposit all checks payable to any signer when endorsed by any other signer.
Disputes – If there is a dispute about ownership or control of an account, the Credit Union may place a hold on the account and not release funds until the Credit Union receives either a court order or an instruction signed by all persons claiming an interest in the account.
Special rules for Minor Accounts
Minor Accounts are joint accounts owned by the minor and a joint account owner who is at least 18 years of age. The adult joint account owner must be an existing member in good standing. Good standing is defined as a member who maintained an active account with a positive account history for the preceding six months regardless of when the account was opened. The Credit Union may complete transactions that may include payments of funds directly to the minor without regard to his or her minority. The Credit Union has no duty to inquire about the use or purpose of any transaction by the minor or joint owner. The Credit Union will not honor any transaction request by a parent or guardian who is not a joint account owner. In order for the minor to be allowed to make debits or withdrawals from the account, the minor must be issued a debit card and the joint owner must authorize a withdrawal amount limit. Once the minor reaches the age of majority, this restriction will be lifted.
Changes in Terms & Conditions
The use of an account is subject to such other terms, conditions and requirements as the Credit Union may establish from time to time. The Credit Union has the right to change the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time, in any manner, and for any reason. We may delete or modify existing terms. We may add new terms without regard to whether the matter is already addressed by this Agreement. We may offer new or different services at any time, and may convert an existing account or service into a new account or service. We will generally notify you in advance of changes by sending written notice to your address as it appears on our records. However, we may make changes without sending you advance notice, unless such notice is required by law. By continuing to use or keep your account open, you will be deemed to accept and agree to any such changes in terms.
Order of posting; understanding your available and actual balance
Order of Posting: The order in which items are paid is important if there is not enough money in your account to pay all of the items presented. We will pay checks, automated debits (ACH), debit card transactions, ATM withdrawals and point-of-sale transactions in the order presented for payment to the Credit Union.
The Credit Union reserves the right to adjust the above processing times in its sole discretion.
Actual and Available Balances: To properly manage the money in your account and avoid Courtesy Pay (overdraft) and Non-sufficient Fund Fees (NSF), it is important that you understand the difference between your “actual balance” and your “available balance” Your “actual balance” is updated throughout the day as transactions are posted to your account. The actual balance will not reflect or include any pending, un-posted authorized transactions, merchant holds. Your “available balance” is the amount in your account at a particular time that is available for immediate withdrawal. Your available balance is updated throughout the day to reflect merchant holds and pending debit transactions. The difference between your actual balance and your available balance is the result of pending activity that has not yet posted to the account (for example, any “pending” debit card merchant withdrawals authorized for payment and deposits that have a hold and are not available for immediate withdrawal). We will use the “available balance” in your account to determine if you have sufficient funds to cover your transactions. You can determine your available balance at the ATM, by phone or by accessing your account with Digital Banking.
You understand you may be overdrawn even when your actual balance is positive. You also understand that you may still overdraw your account even though the available balance appears to show there are sufficient funds to cover a transaction that you wish to make because your available balance will not reflect all of your outstanding checks, automatic bill payments or recent deposits. In addition, a debit card transaction may cause your account to be overdrawn if the available balance is not sufficient at the time of posting even if the available balance was sufficient at the time it was authorized. Also note, your available balance may not reflect all of your pending debit card transactions if an authorization hold is released prior to the transaction being presented for payment. For example, if a merchant obtains your prior authorization but does not submit a one-time debit card transaction for payment within two (2) business days of authorization (or for up to thirty (30) business days for certain types of debit card transactions), we are required to release the authorization hold on the transaction. The available balance will not reflect this transaction once the hold has been released until the transaction has been received by us and paid from your account. You must keep careful records and practice good account management to avoid making transactions without sufficient funds available for withdrawal. For additional details on the availability of your funds for withdrawal, see the section entitled “Your Ability to Withdraw Funds.” If you have additional questions about your available or actual balance, please see a branch representative or call 800.866.6474.
Example 1: If you write a check for $25 but it has not yet cleared your account, your available balance will be $25 less than what is reflected by your actual balance.
Example 2: If you authorize a debit card transaction for $30 but it has not yet posted to your account, your available balance will be $30 less than what is reflected by your actual balance.
Example 3: The following transactions are not reflected in your available balance:
Authorization holds for debit card transactions
When you make a purchase with your Debit Card without entering your PIN, the merchant or other payee may seek our prior authorization and guarantee of payment for the transaction. If we authorize the transaction, we place a temporary hold for the authorized amount in the account linked to your Debit Card. We refer to this temporary hold as an “authorization hold,” and the amount of the authorization hold will be subtracted from your available balance (generally in real time as transactions are received by us throughout each day). The Credit Union will not authorize everyday Debit Card transaction amounts that exceed your current available balance unless you have asked us to do so.
The amount of an authorization hold may differ from the actual transaction amount because the actual transaction amount may not yet be known to the merchant when the authorization request is submitted. Examples include, at-the-pump fuel purchases where the authorization occurs prior to fuel being pumped, restaurant purchases where the authorization occurs prior to the addition of a gratuity, or hotel or rental car transactions where the authorization is for an estimated amount prior to check-out. For those transactions, there may be no authorization hold, or the amount of the authorization hold may be different from the transaction amount. In some other cases we may not receive an authorization request from the merchant, and there will be no authorization hold reflected in your available balance.
We place authorization holds for up to two (2) business days (or for up to thirty (30) business days for certain types of Debit Card transactions) from the time of the authorization. If the transaction is not submitted for payment by the merchant within the specified time period, we must release the authorization hold, which will increase your available balance until the transaction is submitted for payment by the merchant and it is posted to your account. We urge you to record and track all of your transactions closely to confirm that you will not overdraw your account by spending funds that are not available to you.
The Credit Union is under no obligation to pay an item (such as a check, ACH, ATM and Debit Card transactions) which exceeds the available balance in an account; the Credit Union may, however, pay an item and recover or obtain a refund of the amount of the resulting overdraft plus a fee, (see our Fees & Charges) from any of the accountholders of this account, each of whom expressly agrees that each accountholder is jointly and severally liable for any and all overdrafts of this account and any and all associated costs created by any accountholder. When an item is returned unpaid due to insufficient available funds and not covered by the Courtesy Pay Program (see For Checking Accounts with Courtesy Pay), or when an authorized debit card transaction is paid that exceeds your available balance, including your Courtesy Pay limit if applicable, at the time it is presented for payment, you will be charged a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) fee, as stated in our Fees & Charges.
Notice to one accountholder shall constitute notice to all persons authorized to have access to the account.
Ability to pledge funds
Any or all of the joint accountholders may pledge all or any part of the funds as security for a loan or loans with the Credit Union only.
Financial abuse reporting
Accountholder(s) understand(s) and agree(s) that the Credit Union may report known or suspected illegal or fraudulent activity including, but not limited to, the following:
to appropriate law enforcement or government entities, as required or permitted by law. In addition, the Credit Union reserves the right to suspend, restrict, deny or terminate account services and activity, including the placement of an administrative hold (freeze) on account proceeds, or take such other actions as deemed necessary under the circumstances. Accountholder(s) agree(s) to indemnify and hold the credit union harmless from and against all claims, actions, damages, losses, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, as a result of any action or inaction taken in relation to the matters described here.
Enforcement of liens
All funds in an account remain subject to any and all liens, including but not limited to statutory liens and/or consensual liens, security interests, rights of offset and charges, notwithstanding the source of the contribution.
Notification of changes
Each accountholder agrees to promptly notify us in writing of any change in address(es). If you fail to do so, we may send notices, statements or other important information to the address shown in our records and you agree to release us from any liability for doing so. You also agree to notify us in writing of any change in ownership or authorized signers, or if an owner or authorized signer dies or is placed under legal guardianship or conservatorship. We may, at our option, require a new Account Agreement to be completed before any such change takes effect. Any such changes shall not affect transactions previously made.
Consent to contact
You agree we and/or our third-party debt collectors may contact you by phone or text message at any phone number associated with your account, including mobile numbers (i.e., cellphone numbers) which could result in charges to you, in order to service your account, prevent fraud or collect any amounts owed to us, excluding any contacts for advertising and telemarketing purposes as prescribed by law. You further agree methods of contact may include use of prerecorded or artificial voice messages, and/or use of an automatic dialing device. You may withdraw the consent to be contacted at your mobile phone number(s) at any time by calling 800.866.6474, Contact Us through our website or by any other reasonable means. If you have provided or provide a mobile number(s) to us in connection with your accounts, or any of them, you represent and agree you are the wireless subscriber or customary user with respect to the mobile number(s) provided and have the authority to give this consent. Furthermore, you agree to notify us of any change to the mobile number(s) which you provide to us. You agree to indemnify us and our third-party debt collectors, and hold us and our third-party debt collectors harmless, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, costs or expenses (including any attorneys’ fees) that arise out your breach of any of the foregoing representations and agreements.
Waiver of certain rights
The Credit Union reserves the right to waive the enforcement of any of the provisions of this TIS Agreement with respect to any transaction or series of transactions. Any such waiver will not affect the right of the Credit Union to enforce any of its rights with respect to later transactions and is not sufficient to modify the terms and conditions of this TIS Agreement.
The Credit Union makes credit available to its members on a regular basis. The applicant(s)/accountholder(s) of the account authorizes the Credit Union to obtain consumer reports in connection with credit and business transactions involving the applicant(s)/accountholder(s), including but not limited to applying for membership, the opening of a savings or share/draft account or the issuance of an ATM Card, Debit Card, or other service provided by the Credit Union, and the applicant(s)/accountholder(s) of the account authorize any person, association, or corporation to furnish on request of this Credit Union, information concerning the affairs of the applicant(s)/accountholder(s). The applicant(s)/accountholder(s) also authorizes the Credit Union to furnish information concerning the account to consumer reporting agencies.
Negative credit reporting
We may report information about your account to credit bureaus. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report.
Reporting inaccurate information
If you believe the Credit Union is reporting inaccurate information to a credit reporting agency, please Contact Us through our website.
The Credit Union will treat all checks as though the checks were written on the date presented.
Examination of statements
The accountholder(s) to whom the periodic statement of account is sent agree(s) to exercise reasonable care and promptness in examining the statement to discover any errors or discrepancies, and to promptly notify the Credit Union after discovery thereof.

You agree to pay the Credit Union all of our costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, including all collection costs, litigation costs, skip-tracing fees, and outside services fees incurred while we are enforcing our rights under this Agreement.
Credit Union’s right to offset
Accountholder(s) agrees that the Credit Union has the right to offset against any account of any accountholder to cover any amount owing to the Credit Union for any reason. Accountholder(s) understand that this means that the Credit Union has the right to impress and enforce a statutory lien against the accountholder(s’)’s shares and dividends in the event of the failure of the accountholder(s) to satisfy any financial obligation due and payable to the Credit Union. Accountholder(s) understand that the Credit Union may enforce this right without further notice.
